LAOAG CITY – The Ilocos Norte Youth Development Office (INYDO) is now accepting applications to join the Sirib Leadership Camp (SLC) Batch 7, tentatively scheduled this November 26 to December 2, 2018 at the Shalom Retreat House in Pasuquin.
Each SLC batch is composed of advanced and basic campers: an estimated 100 graduates of the basic camp will be undergoing the advanced camp on November 26-27, while neophytes will go through the basic camp on November 28 to December 2.
Graduates of the advanced camp will be assisting as facilitators and trainers of the basic campers.
The INYDO is aiming for 350 delegates during the basic camp. They will be composed not only of student leaders, community-based leaders, and faith-based leaders, but also from other sectors. Individuals who are part of local youth organizations and educational institutions have also been invited, as well as Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) officials.
“Ang gusto kasi ni Governor Imee R. Marcos ay magkaroon ng mga consultative meeting, dahil yung mga pupunta na youth leaders ay sila rin ang nakakaalam at makakapag-isip kung ano pa ang mga dapat gawin ng Provincial Government na proyekto, ordinansa, at resolusyon para sa mga kabataan,” said Mr. Weenter Ventura, INYDO executive director.
“Ang SLC ay may intensive trainings at lectures tulad ng project proposal making, parliamentary procedures, Ilocano leadership, at history ng Ilocos Norte para matutunan natin kung paano yung movement ng mga namumuno dito sa Ilocos Norte, kasi kung titignan natin, sinasabi nila na ang probinsiya natin ay producer ng mga magagaling na lider ng Pilipinas,” he added.
Ventura shared that Governor Marcos through the INYDO wants to continue consulting with the youth and empowering them, knowing that the youth will be future leaders not only of the province but also of the entire country. (PGIN-CMO)
